Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are in a legal battle with Triller over Verzuz, and it’s unclear when the series will return. Jermaine Dupri has been requesting a “Verzuz” against Diddy, but while the platform is in the midst of a legal battle, Diddy made a counteroffer. Diddy is now encouraging the culture to support Swizz Beatz and Timbaland in their ongoing legal struggle with Triller.
The head of Bad Boy Records recently posted a PSA on Instagram, just after Jermaine Dupri confirmed a hit-for-hit match between Bad Boy and So So Def. Diddy and Dupri both concurred that their event will take place in Atlanta rather than on Triller as a result of the ongoing case.
The renowned producers are suing Triller for $28 million due to a purported contract breach. Triller asserted that they did nothing wrong and claimed to have already paid Swizz and Timbaland $50 million in cash and shares. No Swizz and Tim on Triller means no Verzuz for hip hop, as Styles P also stated in a statement that was directly echoed by Diddy and JD.
According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, they claim that after agreeing to buy Verzuz in January 2021, the video-sharing service failed to pay them the full amount. In September 2021, Jermaine Dupri challenged Diddy to a Verzuz battle for the first time.
After nearly a year of back-and-forth, Diddy and Jermaine Dupri have agreed to square off in a Verzuz-style event. Puff went on Instagram Live and decided to invite Dupri into the session. Check out the posts below. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
